Yachting World has both seawall berths (med style, either bow to or stern to) and moorings available in Port Vila, Vanuatu.


VHF 16


See Yachting World's Sailing Directions for the Inner Harbour. Note that there is a height restriction of 27 metres.


A staff member in a tender will frequently be available to assist you to pick up a mooring. The Yachting World moorings are large yellow floating can shaped buoys with a single heavy nylon rope with a spliced loop to take aboard.

Arrange with the Yachting World office before coming in to take a seawall berth. The staff there will assist you to collect the lines and tie up dock lines.


  • Moorings
  • Seawall marina -- berthing med-style with bow lines provided
  • Showers (hot water, solar)
  • Toilets
  • Laundry service -- approx $USD10.00 per load washed and dried
  • Fuel dock -- diesel only
  • Water


No repairs are available but the nearby Port Vila Boatyard has full haulout and repair facilities.


The marina is not regularly patrolled, locals indicate that the moorings offer better security than the seawall marina.


The marina is walking distance from the centre of Port Vila including markets and other shops.


See Port Vila.

  • Delatbabel -- visited this marina in September 2014. The area is very sheltered and there is almost no wind. There is very little noise coming from the shore line, unlike in other places in the South Pacific. Services are quite good for the price and the staff are friendly
